American Football: True or False



I found these questions from a Sports Talk flyer at the laundomat. I thought it was good timing since we're in Superbowl mode. The answers are at the bottom. No looking up stuff in google. I missed three.

1. American football originated in the melting pot which was Boston, MA in the early 19th century.

2. The English concept of Sport as an indicator of social class was embraced by early college football teams from the Ivy League.

3. Having a non-player coach from the sidelines was considered an unfair advantage and thought of as cheating.

4. The Rugby scrum was replaced by American Football's 'line of scrimmage' which made the game much more dramatic.

5. Teddy Roosevelt thought of American Football as brutal and unbecoming of a gentleman and tried to have it banned.

6. American Indians had their own school football team which played other colleges.

7. The first Thanksgiving Day football game was played at the Polo Grounds in New York City and attended by over 30,000 fans.
